If you have been reading technology articles or following related forums for a while, you probably already know that Apple has been in the mobile business for a while now. Whether you like it or not, they are a major player in the mobile game and because of this they have consistently changed their platform in order to keep up with the ever-changing smartphone and tablet market.
This year, they’ve decided to change things up once again. They have decided to replace the iPhone as the default mobile device with a brand new device called the Apple iPad. If you want to know how they are going to change the mobile world, read on.
The new Apple iPad
First off, the news story. Apple’s new device will be available in white, black, silver, and rose gold. The black and silver models will have a flat case which will open into a keyboard dock, a wireless keyboard, a mini USB port, an Ethernet port, and speakers. The Rose Gold model is essentially identical, only with a non-keyboard dock and an additional power source.
Now, let’s talk about what the operating system will look like. For starters, it will have a slightly different look than its predecessor, specifically, the iPhone. If you’ve used one of the iPhone models before, you will notice that the name itself is very different.
The iPhone was known for having a smaller, more simplistic look than its competitors. With the new iPad, Apple wants to take things a bit further and make it look like a piece of art.
The new iPad will be manufactured from strong, durable plastic instead of the weak, brittle glass found in the iPhone. The most notable difference is the screen, which will have a much higher resolution and will appear to be a higher quality than the iPhone. In addition, the iPad will be made out of a thinner design due to the software design being created with high resolution screens in mind. No matter which model you choose, the iPad will feel more like an expensive piece of technology than the iPhone did.
Another one of the ways Apple will set themselves apart from their competitors is in their media software options. The iPad will come with a number of media applications designed specifically for use on the tablet. The most important media application will be an application called the iBooks, which will act as a digital reading book.
Using the new iPad
Users will be able to download digital books to the iPad using iTunes. This will allow users to take advantage of the great reading experience available on the iPad and read electronic books that will actually be easier to read on a small screen, much like reading on a library book.
Apps for use with iTunes will be found in the iPad app store, where people will be able to download more apps. One big theme of the new iPad is entertainment, and this is one of the reasons Apple decided to make their device the media center of choice.
One thing you will probably like about the iPad is that many media apps will have features such as streaming music and audio books. Of course, they will also include other video and photo applications. A feature that may not be that noticeable at first is that an app called FaceTime can be used for video chats with friends and family members on the iPad.
As you can see, this year Apple is going to keep on changing things up and revamping their product line. As they get more aggressive, there will be more innovation and experimentation.
